Alphas s02e13 Episode Script

God's Eye

Previously on alphas Parish's organization is huge and nasty and about to pull the trigger on something big.
- Aah! - One dead, three injured.
That's the fifth attack on the power grid this week.
In a day or two we'll have these power grid protectors in place everywhere so Parish will have a hard time keeping this up.
October 22, 1862.
That is when Stanton Parish discovered he was an Alpha.
Terrorists love anniversaries.
The doctor said that my mom is either gonna die or she'll be able to come home.
But he won't tell me which and he won't tell me when.
We did not kill Dani.
Stanton Parish did.
You know that if Cley catches Parish he'll put him in prison.
He doesn't deserve to go to prison.
No.
Hello, Cornell.
Uhh! This has gone far enough.
Oh, my God.
What the hell did you people do? This is what I designed for Parish.
It's a mini photostim controller.
Power goes in, flashes come out.
It's like steroids for an Alpha.
If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger.
What happens to people who aren't alphas? Mostly they die.
Look, whatever he's planning, he's planning to do it all over the place.
I mean, look at this.
Cameron, you need to get all of this information to Bill.
No, look, I'm not leaving you here.
You have a family.
I don't.
You take this.
You might need it.
Where's Parish? Is he here? I'm gonna watch the world change with a God's eye view.
What do you mean God's eye view? Wh--wh--what is that? Hey, Dr.
Rosen.
Uhh.
Wake up.
Dani Oh, no.
Now I'm in shock.
I'm hallucinating.
You can't pass out.
- I need to get to a hospital.
- No.
No, I can't.
They report gunshot wounds to the police.
- Anyway, there's no time.
- You don't have time.
You have to find him.
- I have to find him.
- You have to find him.
I've gotta find him.
But I've gotta stop the bleeding or I'll never make it.
You know who can help you.
Yes.
Good.
Good.
Get up.
Now get up.
Uhh! Agh.
They found Rosen's blood.
And a worker at the Armory heard gunshots.
Okay, but we need to find him.
Rosen's out there alone.
He's bleeding.
Listen, I will put a BOLO out on him, all right? But we cannot afford to waste any time.
Be on the lookout? That's it? Our number one priority right now is to stop Parish.
Now, if Rosen was here, he would say the same thing.
Oh.
Got it.
You need surgery.
Fiona, I came to you.
Okay.
So this part's gonna hurt.
I need to seal the major blood vessels.
So take a deep breath for me.
Good.
Ready? Ohh.
All right.
Did what I could, but my ability isn't magic, so you're gonna need to take it easy.
I don't want you to split yourself open again.
There's a couch in my office if you wanna use it.
Thank you, but I--I don't have time.
Whoa.
Okay, wait a minute.
If you're going anywhere, your next stop has to be the E.
R.
I'm serious.
I know, I know, I just There's something important I need to do.
So the best we're gonna do is-- He's a plumber.
He's never heard of Stanton Parish.
What the hell was he doing in the Armory? Putting in extra bathrooms.
Really? Stanton's that concerned about his supercharged alphas being nice and comfortable? After everyone else is dead.
We don't know where the photostims are, how they're gonna be deployed, what's gonna set 'em off.
Why don't you go back in there and push the rest of 'em.
See what you can find out.
You get those line reports on NYPD? All right, look, I get it, okay? Obviously you're mad.
Yeah, that happens when I'm nearly incinerated.
Listen to me, you were not supposed to be on that convoy.
Yeah, but you let me go anyway.
'Cause you figured in a month I'll just forget what a total douche you are, right? I did what I had to do.
Okay? It wasn't about you.
Kat.
Kat, where you going? I'm out of here.
Hey.
Kat, you cannot leave.
What are you doing? You know this thing is about to go down.
It can happen any time within the next 24 hours.
Remind me why I should care.
Because there are 8 million people in the city alone.
Yeah and I don't know any of them.
The only people I know are in that room, and they hung me out to dry.
Have I hung you out to dry? Have I? Kat, listen to me.
I need you.
Yo, Jones, how's the security retrofit coming? This grid protector's giving me nothing but problems.
Don't let the joy and laughter hear the snag Hey, we're trying to work here.
Smile, boys, that's the style Come on, man, we got, like, a dozen of these to do.
- This one's a little hinky.
- smile, smile, smile You gotta finesse it.
Almost got it.
Whoa, what's going on with the grid protector? - Here you go.
- Thanks.
Hey, buddy.
Oh.
Ho ho! Mmm.
Sweet, sweet day.
I find it unseasonably humid, but that's what you get when you screw with mother nature.
Mm, selfish bastards.
They did the best they could.
And after tonight some of them will be changed.
And the rest Well, it should be quick and painless.
Well, I got all my guys sat down at the backup generator.
Good.
Gather up Dr.
Rosen, take him to the safe house.
Be convincing, but no unnecessary violence.
Yeah, about that Yes? Uh, Rosen showed up in Yonkers last night.
He was planning on taking you down, boss, so I you know, kind of shot him.
You did what? Where is he? I don't know, he took off in his car.
He's probably dead already.
Look, I was--I was just looking out for you.
Okay? Do you know that it is pointless to kill in anger? I was just thinking that.
Make yourself useful.
Oh, the Lord's been good to me and so I thank the Lord for giving me the things I need the sun the rain and the apple seed the Lord's been good to me Johnny Appleseed amen 2x13 - God's Eye Don't say no for an answer and there's no telling where we've been 'cause people don't understand understand, understand people don't understand people like me Well, I checked every E.
R.
in the city.
Yeah, seven people were admitted with gunshot wounds last night, but--but that's not unusual.
That's only two more than average.
Gary, was Rosen one of the patients? No, and I checked all the morgues too, and they haven't got his body.
So that's good, un-- unless the just haven't found his body yet.
'Cause dead bodies are good at hiding.
I have to go to my mom's room.
All right, Gary.
The nurse keeps calling me.
- Just keep looking, okay? - Yeah, of course I will.
Open-- I should never have left Rosen.
That was Rosen's call.
I mean, he sent you back here.
All he wanted was justice for Dani.
We both did.
Now he's seeing it through.
I let her down.
What happened? Did she die? No, Agent Bell.
Oh.
You woke up.
Hey.
Hey, Mom.
Watch your step there, princess.
You know, I didn't need you to come along with me.
Believe me, it was not by choice.
So you really think this has something to do with Parish? Five unexplained deaths, today of all days? It has to be connected.
We need to find out what killed them.
Could it be noxious fumes? This place smells like ass.
Traces of methane, sulfur, carbon monoxide.
It's not enough to be toxic.
I'm really surprised you can hack it.
One fart in an elevator and you freak out.
Hey! What's your problem? Well you almost got me killed, so there's that.
I'm sorry about that.
It was a complicated situation.
You know, beyond that it's just this whole lack of loyalty thing pisses me off.
You weren't there, okay? It went too far.
You decided it went too far.
If you're gonna sign up for something stupid and dangerous, have the balls to see it through.
Pick a side.
Shh! What? Shh.
It's a heartbeat.
I hear someone.
He's scared.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, it's okay, it's okay.
Hey, we're here to help.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Were you here? Do you want to tell us what you saw? Just tell us what's wrong.
This is ridiculous.
Find Parish.
I have no idea where to look for him.
Yes, you do.
The bastard told you.
Through Mitchell.
I'm gonna watch the world change with a God's eye view.
God's eye view.
I'll watch the world change with a God's eye view.
And where the hell is that? You'll figure it out.
You know who you can trust.
Okay, so the lights flash, leave five men dead, and the only survivor left is an Alpha.
Or he was turned into an Alpha.
I mean, he seemed really freaked out when he made that noise.
This had to be caused by a photostim.
A photostim? Well, that'd be connected to the power lines, right? Great, so we search a gazillion miles of-- Rachel, what is it? It's a grid protector.
We put these in the power system to protect it from Parish.
And he put a photostim inside.
We screwed ourselves.
Parish played us.
They could be all over the country, Rachel.
Thanks for coming back.
We need the help.
Well, I made these things for Parish so some of this is on me.
All right, what set this thing off? Was it a remote? A timer? What? No.
The workers.
They smashed it with a hammer.
Men are idiots.
Thanks.
That's when this thing was supposed to go off.
Evil, twisted son of a bitch.
Every light on this grid will flash.
If you open the fridge, you get zapped.
We got crews pulling 'em out, but we're talking over a million in 19 different cities.
They don't have time.
I mean, it took these guys a month to put these things in.
We can't just take 'em out in a couple hours.
We have to cut the power.
It's the only way.
Pull the plug on the national grid until we can rip all these things out.
Is that even possible on the time we have left? I'll get things started on it.
It won't work in New York.
The lines have dead man switches.
It means the systems keep going no matter what.
That's right, it's--it's a 9/11 thing.
The system can't shut down all at once.
So how we gonna get past this? Me.
All right.
What do you need? You have to transfer her right now, not in 24 hours.
You know, I'm a federal agent.
You have to do exactly what I say.
I'll see what I can do to hurry things along.
Yeah, hurry things along.
Get on with it.
- Gary? - What-- Oh, Dr.
Rosen, what are you doing here? - Hey, Gary-- - I need help.
I need to get my mom out.
Bill said it's not safe.
I wanna move her somewhere safe now.
- Oh, how is she doing? - Oh, she's boring.
She's awake, but she's just staring.
Mom! Gary, I'm sorry I haven't been here for you during all of this.
I've--I've been busy.
Yeah, you were busy-- you kidnapped someone, held them prisoner.
No, I was- - That takes time.
- I was doing what I could to stop Stanton Parish, you know? Yeah, to kill him.
No, Gary, I was trying to protect people.
No, Dr.
Rosen, come on.
Don't lie to me.
The same way you were trying to protect your mother.
No, you're lying to me.
You wanna kill him because of Dani.
God's eye view, Gary.
What is that? I don't know what it means.
I need your help.
I imagine God's eye view-- it has to be high up, and it obviously has some significance for him.
Well, his family own lots of boats, but they're not very tall.
They also own some stables.
It--I don't like horses.
They look confused.
There's Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon.
What's that? Oh, they're architects, and Stanton Parish is on the Board of Directors.
And they--oh, oh, oh! They built the Empire State building.
God's eye view.
Time to go.
And tell him you won't see him again because you're gonna die.
Gary working with you means-- means so much to me.
I--seeing the world through your eyes has been very special.
Oh, yeah, I know.
I'm amazing.
Thank you.
Yeah.
Oh, wait, Dr.
Rosen.
Mm? They're looking for you.
You know that.
I-- I should call them because they could help you.
No, Gary, please, don't--don't do that.
I have to ask you to keep this--keep this conversation just between the two of us.
It's very important.
I don't want any of you to have to, uh, to-- to have to share this Uh, all of this.
You understand? Yeah, I understand.
Thank you, Gary.
Oh, what am I gonna do when I find him? You stop him.
How? How am I gonna stop him? How does he heal? How does he heal? Yes.
Okay.
All right, he must have some sort of enhanced neural immune response system.
It's gotta be voluntary so that he can actually will his axons to regenerate.
Yes.
And I need to inhibit that response.
Anti-coagulants.
Methotrexate.
So if he were injured severely enough He wouldn't be able to heal.
It would be done.
- This is a big hospital.
- Yes.
It'll have everything you need.
Oh, God.
What the hell am I doing? I've never stolen anything in my life.
Aren't you doing what's right? God, I don't even know I believe in what I'm doing anymore.
Well, he does.
He did what he thought was right, and he is not giving up.
I know, I know.
Oh, Dani.
Ever since you died, I-- I didn't die.
I was murdered.
Oh, God, where am I? The Empire State building.
Uh I don't know where the hell am I.
Oh, I'll never make it.
I've lost too much blood.
Take the one to the shuttle.
Transfer at Grand Central station.
Yes.
Grand Central station.
NYPD flagged this off the BOLO.
It's definitely Rosen, and he's not looking good.
All right, what did he take? Wayfarin and heparin, which are blood thinners.
And then there was MXT, which is a chemo drug.
I-- I don't get it, I mean, he's obviously hurt.
Why didn't he take painkillers? There was Vicodin and Percocet in the cabinet, but He's bleeding.
Blood thinners aren't gonna help him.
I know.
Come on, doc, what the hell are you doing? He shouldn't have done that.
Dr.
Rosen, he--he's really angry about Dani dying.
Just like I was angry about Anna and he's doing bad things.
Go.
Oh, that-- Mom, you just spoke.
That's good.
Help him.
I'm not--I, no, I--I can't help him.
I promised him that I wouldn't-- I wouldn't tell anyone if he was in trouble.
But I--what is that? What are you-- what is this? I'm gonna stay here with you.
Take care of you.
What is--wh-- go.
GoI should go? Go.
Mom, I Yeah.
Okay.
I'll--I'll go.
Oh, I'm glad that you didn't die, Mom.
You close? Clock's ticking.
We got maybe an hour.
No, really? Stop bugging us.
Is that my laptop? We needed your logic board.
We gotta punch through the failsafes if we're gonna kill all the power in New York.
It died with honor.
Out! He's so pretty, but so useless.
- He's smarter than he looks.
- Ooh.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to insult the man you love.
I don't love Hicks.
Okay, aren't you almost done with that? Yep.
Guess it's time to go save the world.
I brought you here when you were eight years old, Dani.
Your mother and I.
We all took a tour of the station.
Right here.
Wanted to show you the constellations in the sky, but they're backwards.
Heh.
The tour guide said it was a mistake, but the painter, Paul Helleu, said that he painted them that way because he wanted people to see the stars from the other side of the sky.
Heh.
God's eye view.
He's not at the Empire State building.
He's here.
Thank you, sir.
The 7:15 Express from Stanford now arriving at track three.
All passengers can be met in the main concourse.
FEMA has completed power down in all Parish-affected cities.
Local authorities standing by for power down in New York.
So you sure this is gonna work? I'm never sure.
Best case, yeah.
Okay.
Worst case? Worst case, this thing sets off an explosive chain reaction that kills everybody we're trying to save.
Okay.
Yeah.
That's worst.
Okay, just do it.
Now arriving on track 101 on the lower level.
Everyone, take it easy! You did it.
Even after all that crap you pulled.
You did it.
We did it.
Mostly I did it.
Whatever.
Yay, team.
Midtown, the power's coming back on.
It's spreading north.
Where else? It's just New York, as far as I can see.
It's working.
Should be killing every transformer on the grid.
Then where's the power coming from? See, nothing to worry about.
Oh.
Oh, Dr.
Rosen.
Oh, Dr.
Rosen.
Dr.
Rosen.
Gary.
Oh, no, Gary.
Gary, what are you doing here? Oh, you're bleeding.
That's why I'm here, Dr.
Rosen.
Is that why you took the medicine? Gary, you have to leave right now.
It's very dangerous for you to be here.
Yeah, I know it's dangerous.
You're bleeding.
Please don't worry about me.
You have to go right--right now, Gary.
Go, please.
I can't allow you to be here.
Parish is here.
No, Doc.
No, I'm not gonna go anywhere, Dr.
Rosen.
I get to make my own choices.
Gary, I realize that.
No, you don't realize, Dr.
Rosen.
Okay? You're bleeding and you're alone.
- Gary, I'm fine.
- You're not fine.
You help everyone on the team like you've helped me and like my mom helps me so now it's fair, Dr.
Rosen, that I help you.
I'm not gonna go anywhere, okay? It's my turn.
It's my turn.
- Okay, Gary.
- Yep.
- All right.
- That's okay.
It's a backup generator somewhere and it's big.
Putting out enough power to light up half the city.
Those should be shut down too.
Anything with a solid state trip switch, unless it's really old.
Okay, well, whatever it is we got 45 minutes to take it down.
- Rachel.
- Well, we'll get everyone we got looking for that power source.
Okay, thanks.
That was Gary.
He's in Grand Central station.
He found Rosen.
He thinks Parish is there too.
Maybe that's why the Doc stole those drugs.
He's going after Parish.
Come on, Gary, pick up.
Cameron be safe, okay? Here.
What else do you need to take with you? For what? What's going on? We're evacuating.
Okay, these things are gonna go off in 40 minutes.
We're moving the command center to the FEMA office in Tarrytown.
- We're giving up? - No.
No, we just need to be prepared for the aftermath.
No.
You know what these lights did to you last time.
Rachel, they could kill you.
I'm not leaving Dr.
Rosen.
You are an infuriating woman.
Because I wanna do the right thing? What about lying to me? Hmm? Was that the right thing? Letting my Op get ambushed so you could-- so you could kidnap some guy? I have to be able to trust the woman that I'm in love with.
I mean, don't you get that? Of course.
Wait a second.
Did you say you're in love with me? Yeah.
Of course.
Say it again.
I love you.
You need to come with me.
I can't.
Listen, we find Parish to stop this whole thing from happening.
Okay, Bill, why would Parish go to Grand Central station? 'Cause with his freaky logic, he wants to be in the middle of everything when it goes down.
Yeah, and make sure it happens.
All right, so what's in Grand Central station? Restaurants, the Apple store trains, tracks.
There's a generator that's designed to keep the trains running even if everything else in the city goes down, but that's just for trains.
No, that's the M42.
It's from the '30s.
It can put out enough power for half of Manhattan.
How do you know this? Uh, I don't know.
Somebody must have shown me.
Maybe I took a tour.
It's under Grand Central somewhere.
Okay.
That's our generator.
All right, hold on.
Dr.
Rosen, I can't get very good reception here.
It's all brick.
I'll have to go up to the main box.
I'll be able to see Parish on the security camera.
Gary, be careful.
Yeah.
Oh, Dr.
Rosen, don't-- don't get shot again.
Attention, Metro North customers.
- Lee Rosen? - Mm-hmm? to New Haven, making it first stop in Stamford, is now available for boarding on track 28.
Lee.
You have no idea how glad I am to see you alive.
I'd very much like you to stay that way.
Stanton, where are you? We need to talk, face to face.
Soon.
Something I have to finish first.
No.
No, you do not have to finish this.
You--haven't--haven't you seen enough blood? Yestoo much.
But there won't be any blood.
It'll be quick and clean.
What? What, this is-- this is your final solution? A new beginning.
For this small island, at least.
There is a storage closet ten yards in front of you on the south wall-- it's a gray door.
Go inside.
The light has been disabled.
You're part of this future, Lee.
So shut the door and close your eyes.
From October 22nd through the 26th According to the briefing, that generator should be somewhere around here.
You hear something, Rachel? It's 150 meters down.
Through the Lexington Avenue subway tunnel.
Skylar.
Bill, Parish wouldn't leave the generator vulnerable.
I'll cover them.
You find Rosen.
Come on, let's go.
All right.
Soanybody have any gum or Yeah.
Everybody down! - Watch it! - Unh! The M42's down that passageway! Yeah, awesome, we'll just skip past the guys with machine guns.
Harken, break that! What is that? Go, go! Get down.
Rachel, Skylar, go! Hey.
Unh! Ahh.
I need you to throw me.
What? I need you to throw me.
Ungh! Unh! Hyuh! Uhh! It's old.
Really old.
Old tech is tough.
What did you expect? Not this old.
Let's get started then.
This is one of the first platforms.
Watched them build it.
Helped pour the concrete.
Put this in here when it was still wet.
Liberty Head.
Pure silver.
Surprised no one dug it out.
Certainly by now.
But I'm afraid we move through this world too quickly to notice things of true value.
Shut up! Firearm.
How crass.
She was everything to me, Stanton.
And you killed her.
Yes, I did.
For the greater good.
My sweet Danielle was everything to me.
You have no right to talk about her.
Of course.
My apologies.
You'll forgive me, I have to make my way to the main concourse, and you should get yourself to a safe place.
Please, Lee, it's important.
This is what you want.
What? Wha--what do you want from me? You don't know? In a few minutes, I'll be a mass murderer.
I'll have served my purpose.
I can't kill the damn thing.
Parish crosswired and hardened every access point.
I'm gonna try to pull all the breakers.
You'll be the man they need.
I want you to lead them.
Kill him.
He murdered me, Daddy.
He murdered your little girl! Just put him in the ground! No.
No.
No, I'm not gonna do it.
I'm not that man.
Because Danielle wouldn't have wanted it this way.
She knew there was a better way.
I couldn't find it.
Well, we should have looked harder.
That's what she would have wanted.
Bill, Kat, help Skylar.
Rosen and Parish were talking.
I heard a gunshot.
Okay.
Okay.
Hey, keep working on that.
- Okay.
- Which way? He's already starting to heal, Doc.
Now I know you've got those drugs.
Let's finish this.
- No, Cameron.
- Shoot him up! You kill this bastard and let's get the hell out of here.
Cameron If we kill him, what does that make us? He killed Dani.
I know.
I know.
But if we let him live He'll live with that pain forever.
Don't do it, Cameron.
Be the man that she loved.
Cam? These aren't all the breakers.
There's another panel on the opposite side of the building.
Why would they split them? Security reasons.
So people like you and I can't shut it down, which is smart.
We can't kill the generator from here.
The outgoing lines, they have to run through this panel somewhere.
We'll cut 'em.
Shut down power to the rest of the city.
That's great, we can save New York, but what about the lights in the station? They're hardwired into the generator, aren't they? We're screwed, right? Doc! Hicks! What happened? Oh, it's time.
Run! Get out of the building! I get the news need on the weather report Oh, I can gather all the news I need on the weather report Hey, I've got nothing to today but smile and here I am Whoa.
The only living boy in New York Oh Bill? Bill? Bill! Here I am Dr.
Rosen? Dr.
Rosen? Dr.
Rosen? Here I am the only living boy in New York
